Almost a decade in the making, the creation of the hotel has been a deeply personal journey for hospitality legend Sam Fox who has crafted every aspect of the high-style, high-design 141-room hotel to reflect his worldly travels.

As with all of Fox’s projects, The Global Ambassador is rooted in the surrounding community. The hotel’s five original restaurants were designed as gathering places, not only for travelers and hotel guests, but for locals. Four of the five restaurants will welcome guests on opening day, including:

  • Le Âme: Nestled in the soul of The Global Ambassador, where romantic charm meets culinary excellence, Le Âme is a Parisian steakhouse that pays homage to traditional French fare with the perfect steakhouse touch. Le Âme offers an exceptional experience at any time of the day, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
  • Le Market: The Parisian patisserie, Le Market, draws you in with echoes of chatter and a bustling pedestrian energy throughout the day. From decadent pastries and the perfect espresso in the morning to exquisite cheese presentations curated by the in-house fromager paired perfectly with wines in the evening.
  • Pink Dolphin: Step into the playful and laid-back atmosphere of Pink Dolphin, where Mexican and Peruvian-inspired dishes and drinks pair perfectly with the whimsical and vibrant poolside setting. Whether you’re looking for a leisurely lunch, a sunbather’s retreat or an alfresco dinner, the indoor restaurant spills out into a covered dining terrace.
  • Lobby Bar: With a sense of style that exudes the perfect duality of intimacy and liveliness, the Lobby Bar ignites creative expression with a sophisticated spirit, welcoming essence and dynamic musical stylings – think jazz trios and special artist-in-residence nights. The Lobby Bar serves a mixture of classic and craft cocktails with a European flair.

  • théa Mediterranean Rooftop: Soon to be one of the West’s most picturesque rooftop settings, theà Mediterranean Rooftop is inspired by the sun-soaked Mediterranean region. In the shadow of Arizona’s famed Camelback Mountain, theà, which translates to goddess of light, serves as a haven where guests experience simple pleasures and extravagant moments sky high, that only intensify as the sun sets on the horizon. Theà’s contagious energy lingers in the open air, beckoning you back for more whether for dinner or weekend brunch.
